Kids today...

First day of my fortnight off with the kids, the sun is shining and apart from taking the dog (or Polar bear, depending on your viewpoint) for a run in the field for a game of football, it's a struggle to get either of them out of the house.

I've offered parks, walks, coast and it's difficult to get my eldest snapped off Warcraft and the younger one is battering his DS, leaving me to relax, take the occasional photo, read books and contemplate the odd movement off the sofa. Relaxing I guess, but I do feel like it's somewhat wasting time. It's supposed to warm up later in the week and we'll head to the coast then, probably Scarborough/Whitby or something.

I've got a ton of books to read, some video games to catch up with and a ton of films to watch - which I better do so before the missis starts giving me jobs to do. I spent most of last Easter painting our garden fences.

Heh. I always wondered how computer-nut parents dealt with computer-nut children...
